Id proberly say your diff or clutch would go before breaking a gearset on a launch, i mean, its already engaged. Might end up with a shiney rear diff :P

Yea good point. If they don't touch them regularly it will take them twice as long to do any job so either costs way to much or they end up underchargeing hours.

Not worth their time and if it goes pop you'll be the first to bag them.

Replace things as they break, not because someone from C-Red told you so. Yes the gearboxes have a reputation but that is because back in the day everyone was thrashing the bejesus out of them with scant regard to service life. Ask almost any production transmission to constantly take hard launches, flat shifts and general abuse and it will end in tears. It is just amplified by the AWD system which makes losing traction harder, or in other words puts the driveline under more load because there is no wheel slip. You'll find that if you install a full face organic clutch it will serve as a bit of a 'fuse' for when the going gets tough and will slip a bit, allowing you to keep the gear teeth out of the bottom of the case.

Save your money (ING Direct has a good interest rate at the mo) and let it accrue interest for awhile while you drive around in one of the best cars ever made.

haha dw i dont have 10k which is y i was asking i think i should rephrase the question, how many of you have had there box drop? and will dropping the clutch fast track me to dropping my box? and whoever said i could get all that shit for 6k can u tell me who from? cos ive tlked to mms and allstar and they are quoting me 3500+ for the ecu and 2700+ for the turbo. anyway im aiming for roughly 300hp atw but im a student so it has to be piece by piece. i hav an exhaust and a pod already.
